Allie is a certified bed bug K9. She has a 98% accuracy rate. The Average human inspector is closer to 30%. Allie can inspect a room in a fraction of the time it takes a human inspector. Allie was trained by the same instructor that works with arson, drug and bomb detecting dogs for law enforcement including the FBI. Bed bug canines are simply the new standard in accurately detecting bed bugs.
A man’s best friend is also our best ally when it comes to accurately detecting the presence of bed bugs inside your home or business. Bed bugs are incredibly small creatures that feed on human blood during the night, their nature is to hide in difficult to reach places, while remaining ever so small. Bed bug canines are brought into a home or business to establish a solid foundation for bed bug treatments, as the dogs can easily confirm their presence. Using a similar training technique as those used by law enforcement, we can train canines to sniff out bed bugs with a 98% accuracy. While most human inspectors can reach accuracy rates of 30% or less, there is simply no room for error when it comes to the comfort and safety of your family.
Detecting bed bugs with the naked eye is like finding a needle in a haystack. The adult bed bug is comparable to the head of a needle in size, thus making early detection very difficult for our human senses. By employing bed bug canines, we can ensure early detection, thus ensuring the complete elimination of this pesky bug.
These professionally trained canines detect all life stages of bed bugs, even if you already know there is an affected area, we can accurately determine the extent of the infestation. By using pinpoint accuracy, Bug Bouncers is helping people all over Florida maintain the bed bug infestation under control. The only effective solution to complete elimination of a bed bug infestation is HEAT. Learn more about heat treatments.
Bed bug inspections and diagnosis are usually performed manually by moving large pieces of furniture, mattresses, and couches. Considering how small bed bugs are, the low accuracy of human detection, and other factors, bed bug canines are the single best option for bed bug detection.
The bed bug dog can easily and accurately be used to detect infestations in large buildings, hotel rooms, apartment complexes, condos, timeshares, rental properties, university dorm rooms, resorts, and motels. This allows for proper diagnosis and lower costs when deploying heat treatment to eradicate the infestation. Our experience has taught us that hotels are extremely vulnerable to bed bug infestations, therefore we proactively search for bed bugs in hotels in popular Florida tourist destinations.
The latest in technology
It’s not uncommon to see dogs being used in law enforcement, bomb detection, drug sniffing, and other complex applications with no room for error. While it may seem like a low tech solution to this problem affecting so many, a bed bug canine detection service is cutting edge technology. There is no device or method currently available to consumers that can accurately detect bed bugs in all life stages. As pioneers in this industry, Bug Bouncers can confidently stand by every bed bug certification we perform.
